I'm so sorry to hear about Barbara's death. I had the privilege of working with her on an exhibition at Museum London in the 1990s on a landscape show. She had a passion for art and life.

Dear Jack and family Please know that all of you are in my thoughts as you cope with the loss of such a wonderful woman. Barb was always so kind and friendly and she was a great story teller. I loved hearing her talk about her travels and what she learned. Her death is a great loss as she was truly a very loving person who added so much to all of our lives. You have my deepest sympathy

As a college pal, Barbara was loyal, down-to-earth, enthusiastic, and a super-athlete. It wasn’t until we’d graduated that I became aware of her artistic side. When Barb visited Toronto, she was always eager to see and to talk about the latest plays and books, about publishing and, of course, about the art world. When she was able to make a serious commitment to her painting, she did so with a passion. Though she could work traditionally, many of her pieces were bold, sassy, original as she followed her own special vision - the mark of the true artist. Barbara has left us with a lifetime of memories to treasure. My heart goes out to her loved ones in your grief over her loss.

What a delightful, zesty woman Barb was. And a very fine artist - a not-all-that-common combination. I feel lucky to have been touched by her kindness and open-heartedness, and lucky also to have a permanent reminder of her and her talents on my living room wall. All best, Jack, to you and yours...

I was so sorry to hear the sad news about Barb. She was memorable in so many ways. She had such wonderful stories about the book-selling business in London, and the history of her Western University years. I will always remember her as vivacious, funny, generous, loyal, and above all, a proud feminist. It was a gift to have known her as a friend.
With all my love, Constance

Hello. Julia Morrow emailed me today that Barb had passed away. This was sad news to hear. She was an impressive lady - so accomplished at whatever she did. Celebrate her life.

Please accept my sincere condolences at this difficult time. I am a friend of Kim's from highschool, and remember being in the Hyatt home several times.It was interesting to know that Mrs. Hyatt loved animals, as I so well remember the family's pet monkey!
It was so great to be back in touch with Kim recently, and I am so saddened to hear this news.
All my best to the Hyatt family, and again, my sincere condolences.

Nelson and I would like to pass along our condolences to you and all your family. I owe a personal debt to Barbara for putting me in touch with a neurosurgeon when I so desperately needed one. I shall never forget her kindness. So sorry for your loss. A life well lived. Enjoy your memories

So sorry for your loss...we are thinking of you!
May there be comfort in knowing that someone so special will never be forgotten.

What a privilege it was to know Barb, and share her love of books, animals, and feminist theory! My first memory of Barb is of her wearing her tennis whites, having no doubt soundly beaten her opponent (I think it might have been Sheila Lancaster), almost forty years ago. She was an amazing woman. We will miss her at Hags, especially her stories of the book business in London!

Dear Jack and family, Rita and I are shocked and deeply saddened to read of Barbs' passing . While we did not get to know her as well as we did you , she was obviously a vivacious and talented lady. Her long illness may have masked those things in the last years , but your dedication to and love for her must have given her great comfort.

Dear Jack, Mark, Drew and Kim. Sorry to hear of the passing of Barb. She was a great lady and I still have many memories of being over at your house, from all your moms art to the monkey. Our thoughts are with you. Chris and Tracey Cookson

My deepest sympathies to you Jack and your family in the loss of Barb. She was a fine lady and it was an honour for me to stand by your side as best man at your wedding to Barb way back in 1957. The two of you made a perfect couple! Fond memories of you both. Best Regards - Roger

Mark, I was very sorry to hear about your mother. Of all the moms connected to our group of friends, she was one of the nicest. I can't remember ever seeing her with a cross expression on her face. She always seemed so good-natured.
Kim and Drew, it's been several years but I hope that, otherwise, things are going well for you both; you have my condolences.
Of course, my sympathies go out to you as well, Dr. Hyatt.
My best to all of you.

We were sad to hear about Barb. Jack, our thoughts are with you. I still miss seeing you and Barb going for one of your many daily walks. Barb was a true inspiration for me and I think of her every day when I pick up a paint brush.

Belated but sincere condolences on your loss of Barbara.
